Mother's Day Pedicure

Not to say a real pedicure in a real salon wouldn't have been awesome, but I am more than satisfied by the male nail technicians in my own private backyard salon.

My favorite part was watching them choose from the basket of colors.  OCD Adam chose varying hues of pink, all of which were sparkly.  Who-ever-knows-what-is-going-on-in-that-head Alex chose brown, pink, blood red, blue, and purple.  Adam meticulously painted, using the brush to carefully paint from nail bed to tip, coloring outside of the lines only on the smallest toes.  Alex painted in swirls and x's and back-and-forth motions all the while tenderly holding my toes still.

The end result is ten toes each painted a different color, and a pedicure I can proudly wear as evidence of how much my boys love their mommy!  No expensive salons for me!
